Enchanted

Post  jojo on 2007-11-25, 20:56

Ok, it has been along time since I walked out of a theatre with a big smile on my face.....In one word, Enchanted is "delightful." Sure it is a fairy tale, chick flick, but is absolutely adorable and very funny. I loved the interactions between the cartoon characters who come to life vs. the "real" people in New York City.....Patrick Dempsey is charming as the divorced father with a six year old daughter, and the girl who plays the "maiden" (Amy Adams) is great as a real life cartoon character. Ok, so it is the chipmunk "Pip" that really steals the show.....

I thought is was great entertainment and well worth my $8.75 (ouch) to see it. Kelly went with me as loved it as well. Not sure how you guys will like it.....there was maybe one guy for every 10 girls in the theatre.

I dare you to see it and not go home singing the main song "I am dreaming of a true love's kiss".........or at least humming it in your head.

Off-hand, do you know what it's rated? Do you think it would be appropriate for a 9-year old (and me, of course :) )

It's rated PG. Its a Disney movie and my guess is that it's a delightful family movie...but I haven't seen it.

Here's its official website

The lead actress was on Buffy the Vampire Slayer once, she played Tara's cousin when her family came to take her home. Haven't heard a thing from her since...she has certainly nabbed herself a plum role with this. sunny

Haven't heard a thing from her since...

Amy Adams (the lead actress) was in two films in 2005 that I
loved..."The Wedding Date" (where she played Debra Messing's sister)
and "June Bug" a supporting role in a small independent film for which
some critics thought she should have gotten considered for an oscar
nomination.

Well,she is certainly getting good press from this...they are comparing her to a young Julie Andrews.

She's had a couple of episodes on The Office and on Smallville. I don't think she's been a regular in a series yet. scratch

I love Amy Adams! I was wondering how this movie was going to go, usually if cynical Richard Roeper likes something in the chick flick catagory it's a good sign...he did and I'm fighting off the impulse to go see it, I already have six movies lined up in Dec that are must see's.hair raising

My most "must see" will be P.S.I Love You with Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.....yes, AND James Marsters! And then August Rush...needs a little suspension of disbelief (like Enchanted, pribably) but then is going to have wonderful music....and Maybe Sweeney Todd with Johnny Depp (depending on reviews) . But Enchanted is going to make it on my list (and with the daughter visiting from Seattle...we will probably get to quite a few movies (one of her favorite things to do on vacation as she is out at sea a lot and feels she misses out doing on things like that) .
